In our previous blog & video we outlined the initial set of packaging changes we made to be as eco-friendly as possible without compromising on quality or protection. These included:
1.) Calling time on polystyrene
2.) Water-based adhesive packing tape
3.) Clearer branding and handling instructions
Now that these changes are in circulation, we are delighted to say we were able to make further improvements: These include:
4.) Reduced Box Height
With the reduced depth of packaging needed to safely deliver our products, we were able to reduce the box height by 24mm in height.
5.) From Waste to Packing material
Another procedure we’ve added to our packing process is the ability to use our own waste cardboard and recycle it in-house. By investing in a simple perforating machine, each sheet of excess cardboard can now be used as padding mats or padded filling inside every shipping box.
We can also use it to give additional, shock-absorbing protection to heavy, larger, or more fragile products. By adjusting the cushioning volume of the cardboard to suit, we can ensure maximum product safety and security during the shipping journey.
The changes have been received positively by our customers so far. It’s important for Ceramicx to always be improving our products and how they are delivered all around the world. We hope our customers go on to re-use or re-purpose as much of the packaging as they can, continuing the circular economy routine we have adapted.
